IUMA (Internet Underground Music Archive) Collection

A description of the IUMA from the excellent zounds.com site:

The Internet Underground Music Archive was better known by the acronym IUMA. The IUMA was started in 1993 by three students at the University of California at Santa Cruz: Jeff Patterson, Jon Luini and Rob Lord. The three men worked together to create an online music archive that would help musicians and bands who weren't signed by a major label. The site allowed these unsigned artists to upload files and send them to fans. The site also enabled the artists the opportunity to talk with their fans. The IUMA was first part of the Usenet newsgroups.

In 1998, Emusic bought the Internet Underground Music Archive and changed the look and feel. Unsigned artists would sign up with the service and receive a website and URL devoted to their name. Emusic also allowed artists to use three different services to upload their music. They could use Internet radio, a live streaming feed, or a download option where fans could download the songs directly to their computer. Many of the early files were WAV and AIFF files, but they later added the option of MP2 tracks and MP3 files. The website included a special section where the artists could see the number of visitors and downloads they had received and some top visited artists received royalty checks from the company.

In the early 2000s the company held a 'Battle of the Bands' event known as Music-o-mania, which went into the record books as the biggest online contest of its kind in history. They also helped bands gain exposure by working with talk show host, Jenny Jones, who have these unsigned artists on her show.

The company was known for unusual publicity stunts. They held a contest in 2000 for expectant parents. Couples who legally named their child Iuma were entitled to receive a check for $5,000. Travis Thornhill and his wife were one of the first families to take the company up on its offer, by naming their child Iuma Dylan Lucas. Thornhill was in a band that used IUMA for business purposes and the couple thought it would make a good story. The company paid out the same amount to a number of other families, too.

In 2001 Emusic decided to reduce costs and laid off a number of employees working exclusively on IUMA. Some of those workers stayed on because they believed the website would return and be better than ever. However, in 2006, Emusic shut down the IUMA site and those workers all left. Vitaminic bought the IUMA format that same year, but the site never returned.

In August 2013, IUMA Co-Founder Jon Luini was interviewed about the historical significance and lessons learned in the birth of IUMA.

Lo got started in music round about 1990. As an aspiring solo artist, he was writing rhymes mostly for himself, and spitting them with his partners in school, namely the boys who would later become 007 and E-Rock, the other 2/3rds of the Boyz. "We all was from 5th Ward and we were really boys then." Lo explains, "So it was just natural that we would come together and name ourselves the 5th Ward Boyz and represent where we from." There's no question as to who the top reality...

Alien Orbiter Explorer started in 1998 as a solo project without major ambitions. However, as the number of songs grew [and also as my music gear grew], it began receiving a lot of media coverage. If you want, you can do a Google search and you'll find many reviews. In the year 2000, my song "Pinochet is Dead" was published in the House Of Techno - VOLUME 1 compilation, alongside other songs made by well known artists as Sash, Yazoo, Binary Finary and Paul van Dyk....

ABNF mixes together grindcore, emo, rock, and industrial to make unique sounding posthardcore/rock music. ABNF consists of Ryan Fairfield, a shitty computer, and a guitar. Anotherwords, it's a one-man band. Many pre-ABNF projects have been but failed attempts. But Ryan has high-hopes for this project and also prays that at least a few people will love and support his fucked up music.

I was born and raised in Minnesota. I am currently working on my first CD called "Feel My Spirit." I enjoy singing inspirational songs that have a message of how wonderful our Lord Jesus is! I also like to tell stories of relationships and situations we experience and how we endure and learn from them. God bless! You Are Loved!

Formed by Fredrik Joachimsson in 2002. This project started out in the early 2002 when i decided to write mainstream rock music! Later on i choosed to make this project to a duo with me and a girl (Charlotta Rosquist) on vocals! I've not yet formed a full-sized band but it will certainly happen very soon, i hope! In the meantime i will carry on recording the music by myself and putting mine and Charlotta's voice on as well!

I am a Large Group of ONE (aLGONE). I make electronic music that seems to make a better soundtrack for bong-hits than dance clubs. I don't know why. That is just how my music comes out. Contact me with compliments or criticisms. Either way I will be happy. Latah, aLGONE

"a matter Of FAITH" is a band with a decidedly classic rock sound. We come from that era and carry a lot of our influences with us while putting our own twist on them. It has been commented that elements of popular bands from the "Classic Rock" period such as Aerosmith, Santana, Eric Clapton, Lynyrd Skynyrd and others can be heard in our music. If you enjoy music from that period or just like music that rocks you to the bone give us a listen. We can praise God together!!!...

Once you realize that almost everything you encounter in your life is a lie, a blaring cacaphony of dishonesty and half-truths, telling you who you are and who you should be, you can begin to understand this trio. Through the deafening voices of confusion and banality, the suits who tell you what to do, the smiling faces on television telling you what to like, and all of the multitudes of cattle who accept this universal and objective "reality", this group attempts to deliver to you...

Today's music world rarely encounters anything novel. The airwaves are polluted with manufactured simplicity and uninspired imitations of rock that was considered creative years ago. Fortunately for music fans, A Nice Dot are fighting the simplicity of the system with their bitch-slap of innovative sound. Refusing to conform to popular trends, A Nice Dot are making enough noise to counteract the competition. Their debut album, Entering the Coral Sea, was met with rabid enthusiasm from fans...
